That is not an answer I would be happy about. The video module then is worthy only for Amiga 2000 because A3000 already have high-quality scandoubler with flickerfixer. Pity he does not plan AGA module :(

On the other hand, the digital signal will (presumably) provide better output quality, so still some use for the A3000 with your LCD (and no issues switching between RTG and "native" modes).

BTW, quite a few of the old-school scandoublers (the A1200 DCE one comes to mind) weren't 24-bit. Not to mention, a considerable share of LCDs out there aren't, either. (An example of one of the techniques some manufacturers use to "fake" greater color depth...)

@ jack-3d & Thomas Richter

thanks for review & info, I just ordered my MNT VA2000 Zorro Graphics card for my Amiga 4000:)

anyone know how i can get a hold of Lukas (the board developer) as he's not responding to email?  I paid for my card on March 19 and still haven't received it??

Can the MNT card be used with mediator A4000di setups?

don't see why not as it's a Zorro card but it's safe to ask anyhow on the contact link at the website

@ all

Markus got a hold of me and should be getting my card next week :-)

there might be any timing problems, but im unaware to any, let alone mediator exlusive. driver support  for the card appears to be still incomplete, but the project is a very promissing one.

well it took a while but finally got my card in my A4000:hammer: impressed so far but had to flash the firmware back to v1.4 to get my card recognized but today just got a note from the developer that V1.62 is out and should hopefully fix that issue.

get V1.62 here: http://mntmn.com/va2000/

now really hope that the MNT VA2000CX Video Slot Expansion would be upgraded to support AGA so I can get rid of My IndiAGA in my A4000

new firmware out today!

get V1.7 here: http://mntmn.com/va2000/

for me this version doesn't find my x-syrf-100 again but at least it boots into Workbench again...only version that works and doesn't interfere with my X-Surgf-100 is v1.4 for some reason ? looking forward to next update...

I have one sitting in an A4000D not doing much flashed to the 1.62 firmware. I wasnt aware it caused issues with the xsurf-100? Makes me not want to use this thing hearing that!

Something else that doesn't work with the X-surf-100?  I bought one of those IDE4Zorro2 cards for my A2000, and, the x-surf-100 will not work with this card either.  As soon as the TCP/IP stack is initialized, it locks the computer up so that the mouse will not respond and the floppy click stops.  I didn't have that problem when I was using a plipbox instead of the x-surf-100.

guys hold up the VA2000 & X-Surf 100 are working great BUT with only v1.4 firmware on my system...for whatever reason the last few updates are messing with the x-surf-100 BUT the developer knows about the issue and will hopefully get it sorted out on a new update soon but in the mean time the card works great with v1.4 for me

I can see replacing my CG64-3D with SD/FF with this when it matures a bit. The amount of memory for a stand alone card is impressive.

is the microSDHD card reader still in beta as the 'beta' seems to be removed now from the MNT website ?

also, what's the max size microSDHD card that can be used in the VA2000 ?
